I don’t care what the media says and what Obama himself says, his administration is as responsible for the BP leak and aftermath as BP itself. The idea that BP, the states of Louisiana, Alabama, Texas and Florida have to ask for approval of the EPA and a dozen other agencies to clean up the mess or prevent it in the first place is ludicrous.
President Obama should have signed an executive order that waived all regulation of clean up and efforts to stop the leak. All of this could be accomplished with just a ball point pen.
For Obama and the democrats to try and deflect blame on the Bush administration after a month of sitting on their collective hands doing nothing is ridiculous.
Obama was busy overseeing the progress in the gulf by taking meetings the NCAA men’s basketball champion Duke Blue Devils at the White House to honor their 2009-2010 championship season in the Rose Garden.
The media, who seems to never notice Obama’s constant speaking gaffs and the fact that Obama is a stammering idiot, gave him a full month before they began attacking his inaction in the gulf.
If GW Bush were president, the media would have begun attacking him after only three or four days.
Obama chose to sit and attack the media all week for daring to ask why his administration isn’t taking a more proactive approach in the gulf, rather then take the attacks as a cue to get off of his dead ass and do something.
Just this morning when British Petroleum had a bit of good news about the mud possibly sealing off the well head, Obama said “We have had some success with sealing off the well.”
Then this afternoon when it was learned that the mud didn’t work, Obama was referring to “They” and saying “They are” when referencing BP and their efforts to seal off the well.
So when its good news, Obama is helping, when its bad news he isn’t helping. Which is it Obama? You can’t have it both ways sir. Your either helping or your not.
The bottom line here is America was sold a bill of good with Obama. The guy is an inexperienced buffoon. JD
